Disaster Porn as Photography

Disaster Porn as Photography

This article on the Daily Mail is an example of how images of what is frequently cited as disaster porn can be used to tall a story of economic collapse but without exploring the underlying reasons. Shame about the picture quality that the Daily Mail are using, some of the images have reproduced okay but other seem to be rather low in quality on the website.
Disaster porn is something that we need to be aware of it is something that is so easy to create without looking for the reasons why the devastation that can be seen in images exists. Yet the images in this genre can be seductive as it is about light and pealing paint and time.
